Next Mustang to Have Turbo Four

Report

The next Mustang will be offered with an EcoBoost four-banger but will it be for European buyers only?

If reading this title has sent you completely ballistic then take a deep breath and try and cast your eyes over the next few words. Everything will be OK, we promise. In a new report emanating from Edmunds, Ford has confirmed that the 2015 Mustang will be offered with a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that’s based on the current turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost found in the Focus ST. Output, however, will supposedly rise from 252 horsepower to at least 300 hp.

However, this upgraded four-pot may only be available for European buyers due to it being a more economical, low-emissions alternative to a V8. Europeans will still have the opportunity to own a Mustang V8 but at a much higher price. However, Road and Track is countering Edmunds claim and states that the turbo four-pot will be sold in the US as well, but not as a base engine; the 3.7-liter V6 will remain standard. Yes, this EcoBoost four could end up being a more expensive option over the V6 but still cost less than the V8. As previously reported, the next Mustang will retain its optional 5.0-liter V8 but Ford has not confirmed yet whether the US will also get that EcoBoost four-pot or not.
